Contraception gets most of the attention, but
#ACA provides for lots more preventive care for women, starting today: goo.gl/OU3RB

Starting today, women will have access to contraception w/out any co-pay or deductible – a policy supported by 73% of Americans
— Sen. Barbara Boxer (@SenatorBoxer) August 1, 2012
I know in your mind, you can think of the times America was attacked. One is Dec. 7, that's Pearl Harbor Day. The other is Sept. 11, and that's the day the terrorists attacked. I want you to remember Aug. 1, 2012, the attack on our religious freedom. That is a day that will live in infamy, along with those other dates.
. . . Today is the day religious freedom died in America
~ Representative Mike Kelly, R-PA, Via Huffington Post
Rep. Mike Kelly (R-PA) just compared Aug 1st 2012, day contraception mandate went into effect with 9/11 and Dec 7 1941 Pearl Harbor.

@lukerussert I think many families and vets who lost loved ones in both of those events would be highly offended at the comparison.

Today, as important health services become free of co-pay/deductible, Republicans renew war on women. Op-ed: huff.to/NalBNJ

Rep. Mike Kelly just got a scratch on his finger and compared it to the Holocaust.

I want somebody to get Mike Kelly on record saying which is worse: women get the pill without copay, or 1500 Americans die violently.

@senatorboxer I'm not one of your 73%. If they want to have sex, let them foot the bill for the contraception.

@frankconniff: Rep. Mike Kelly compared contraception coverage mandate to Pearl Harbor & 9/11. But there's no Republican war on women.

So Rep Mike Kelly manages to insult women, 9/11 families & first responders and WWII vets all in one go.Nice.

Today, America experienced another massacre... apparently. FromDude, Mike!........ Mr. Kelly......... you for one do not need to take any birth control pills, so chill and have a burger king or two to calm your nerves..... Better yet, few Chick-Fil-A sandwiches.

Heavy Solar Flare activity this past week, bombarding us with gamma rays. Some just can't handle themselves in public after contact.

Pearl Harbor, 9/11, and now Aug. 1—the day we became a nation of sluts. Never forget.
~ Kaili Joy Gray on Daily Kos
I see. 3,000 sperm killed are interchangeable with 3,000 people burned alive in the WTC. The only day of infamy I see here is that today we realize we have an elected Representative who could actually be insane.

So, the kamikaze sperm are the victims we're bemoaning? I'm sort of lost in the analogy.
